The CW has released a longer, better look at its upcoming Vampire Diaries companion The Secret Circle. This is basically the same clip ad buyers watched at the last week’s upfronts. Like the original VD extended trailer, it sort of tells you the whole pilot in condensed form, but it’s not like that tactic wasn’t effective last time around.

So what do you think? Does Secret Circle, um, cast a spell? (Sorry, but the witch puns will only be fresh for a like another week or two before we’re all sick of them, so we have to get some in now).
